MALLORCA hospitals to receive 47 new ambulances and other vehicles as part of a €9.2 million project to renew entire Balearic fleet of medical vehicles and equipment.
Al of the funding for this purchase which will be completed by 2023 is coming from the European Union Recovery Fund and the fleet will be under the control of Gestió Sanitària i Assistencial de les Illes Balears (GSAIB) a public company.
Overall, the Health Service will see an increase of 12 vehicles across the islands and the new fleet will comprise 72 properly equipped ambulances and eight vapid intervention vehicles.
The new vehicles will have the same basic equipment as the existing fleet but will of course be newer and contain the latest life-saving technology and software.
The results of the pandemic have shown the need to have more emergency vehicles available so that the ratio of vehicles to public need is reduced over the current situation in order to ensure faster and even more reliable response times generally and more specifically in the event of another emergency situation.
The ambulances will serve the various different hospitals on the islands.
